.duane, God indeed counts sins against sinners, and he did not make an eternal firey hell in vain: For salvation not gotten, is salvation forgotten.
---Eloy on 5/11/08


The book of Proverbs tells us that: Whoso covereth sins shall not prosper but whosoever confesseth and forsaketh shall find mercy.

catherine, I understand [sister], stay rooted/grounded in God's Truth, and see you in heaven. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 2/26/07


There comes a time when a person that promotes works is brought to explain "how was she saved?" Are you saved by what you have done? Is your religion the product of your own natural strength? Do you feel equal to all that salvation may require? Do you conclude yourself to be in a safe and happy condition becuase of your natural excellence and moral ability? As it has been shown, you conclude that works are a must in order to be saved, then you are a child of Hagar.
---Lisas on 2/26/07


2. All children of Hagar are born after the flesh, a child of the bondwoman. You may want to be and desire to be like Isaac, but are really a sister or brother to Ishmael. A person who is laboring for self-salvation by his own doings, feelings, and self-denials are ingnorant of his or her own state. You may boast all you want and say you are not of the bondwoman, yet you spend your whole life in servitude. You never know what liberty means, what content means, what delight in God means.
---Lisas on 2/26/07




3. You wonder when men talk about "full assurance of faith" YOu judge that they might be presumptuous. You have done so much but must do much more. YOu are born of the bondwoman, and your spirit is ever in bondage. On the other hand, those that are born of the free woman understands that salvation is of the grace of God from first to last. That person also knows that where God has given His grace He does not take it back,
---Lisas on 2/26/07


4. For God tells us, the gifts and calling of God are without repentance" Romans 11:29. Such a person, accepting the finished work of Christ and knowing His acceptance in the Beloved, rest in the Lord and rejoices exceedingly. His life and his spirit are filled with joy and peace for he was born free, and he is free, a child of the free woman, Sarah. Nothing you ever will do, can change you from the bondwomen to the free women. And neither can a free child of Sarah be a child of Hagar.

Mrs. Morgan===How did the unbelievers get smarter than the Believers? We know some things that the unbelievers do not know so, that just makes us SMARTER. And get this, unbelievers can quote scriptures better than I can. WOW!
---catherine on 2/26/07


If any one is confused about [godly] fruits/works, the Book of James will clear up that confusion, only if one [allows] the Spirit to [reason] with them. Some have been horribly indoctrinated with false doctrine and they need to let the Lord break that bondage. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 2/26/07


6. A person that is saved, has the Holy Spirit in Him to guide him, teach him, convict him, reveal God's word to him, and that person is growing in Christ, a better Christian each day, loves the Lord, but it's all the work of Christ in us, not of our own works, for if it was we would get the credit, Honor and glory that only belonges to the Lord. I will say it again, You are nothing without Christ in you So stop taking the credit.
---Lisas on 2/25/07




Serving the Lord in Spirit and in Truth is freedom(and is NOT to be debated) , those who refuse to serve the Lord in Spirit and in Truth will be judged under/by the Law. Once Saved Always Saved/Eternal Security is a [proven] false doctrine. The Lord's [before] ordained good works mentioned in(Ephesians 2:10)&(Rev. 3:18) AFTER salvation, are [of Him], not man, is[REQUIRED], some refuse to accept this, it's rejecting God's sound doctrine of submitting and yielding to Him, Very sad. God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 2/25/07


No Morgan, you do distort Scripture when you tell the already born again believers that in order to keep that salvation that was paid with the blood of Christ already, somehow now needs your works in order for that salvation to be any good to you now that you are a new creation. The only reason we are good, the only reason we love others, the only reason, we work so hard for Christ is because of Christ. Not because of ourselves. Don't you get it?
---Lisas on 2/25/07


2. From the beginning brought forth the works of man to gain that salvation. You speak on behalf of the law to everyone. you are on line only because of Christ who moves you to be on line. You try to be kind to others because Christ lives in you, and you want to do the more you can for Him. But in your case you want to take credit where credit is not due. It is only because of Christ that you are who you are. But you on the other hand turn around and tell the true believer he has to be sinless,
---Lisas on 2/25/07


3. out of his own power in order to maintain what Christ already paid for. Somehow Christ death and resurrection were not enough, you can to contribute something to that salvation. That only comes from a man centered theology that tries to earn that salvation which in reality you never deserved since you were separated from Christ and if it was not for the Spirit conviction you and bringing you to faith, you would still be lost. It is never about you are me, its about Christ and His work in our lives.
---Lisas on 2/25/07


4. Not one single one of us is preaching for the believer to sin. We are speaking that every true believer still sins. If we didn't we would not have gotten all the passages to stay away from sin, to be more like Christ, to not do this or that. But it is for guideness every time God reveals more of His word to each person. We don't promote sin, we don't like to sin, we love the Lord and want to do the most for Him. You distort what we are saying and make us promoters of sin, which we are not.
---Lisas on 2/25/07


5. But you just don't get it or refuse to listen. You have made up your mind that each day you will promote salvation by works, and if that person does not do his works he is going to hell, because he has to earn that salvation that was free from the beginning, just as all other religions you are teaching salvation by your own works, just as Islum, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, and of course Catholics who gain their salvation by works and not justification by faith.

The Lord trieth the righteous but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul I hateth. We are as God's PEOPLE to stay in prayer. continiously asking for forgiveness of our sins. How come? God "HATES SIN".
---catherine on 2/25/07


Only true believers seek after God. That statement is for all believers to seek more of God. The lost do not seek God. They are running away from Him. Only the one's that are a new creation will seek after God. "He who seeks finds" Matthew 7:8. For Romans 3:10-12 talks of the lost and his condition. "There is none righteous, no not one; There is none who understands, there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; They have altogether become unprofitable;
---Lisas on 2/25/07


2. Again Romans 10:20 says, "I was found by those who did not seek Me; I was made manifest to those who did not ask for Me." clearly speaks of the lost. Paul quotes from Isa. 65:16, where Isaiah makes this statement, "So that he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; Becuase the former troubles are forgotten, And because they are hidden from My eyes." This passage is speaking about the "God of Amen" referring to the very God,

3. the true God, who will noor His promises to Israel, thus vindication Himself in the eyes of all people. He remembers no more their sins. But those words are the the remnant of God only. A person lost has to be made able to respond to the calling of the gospel. 2 Chronicles 30:18 says, "... May the good Lord provide atonement for everyone, who (God) prepares his heart to seek God, the Lord God of his fathers, though he is not cleanse according to the purification of the sanctuary.

4. It's true, not all that say, Lord, Lord, will enter heaven. They had to have a repented heart, which comes through the gospel of Christ presented to him, the Spirit convictes him of his sins, and he begans to seek God. "For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by His life through sovereign grace. The very point stressed is that our standing with God is not based on our desires anymore after regeneration.
---Lisas on 2/25/07


Mrs. morgan on sin and sinners. You have it down pretty good. I don't believe for one minute, that no true child of God is flipent about sin. God hates Sin. It stinks to Him. We are to hate sin more in ourselves than in other people. And I do.
---catherine on 2/25/07


christ did it all or we have a part in salvation,he is the savior or only our partner,its eternal life or probation life,we are forgiven by his death or forgiven by our confession,shall we be focused on him or our sins?is it grace that teaches us to say no to sin or the law.titus 2:11,12

"If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us."(1 John 1:8) --False doctrine supporters forever distort Scriptures like (1 John 1:8),which seems to be their all-time favorite Scripture to distort, In [reality] it's in regard to a person who is in denial,trying to conceal sins.(1 John 3:9) clearly states that a true child of God sins not, the Word doesn't contradict Itself, false doctrine does. Justifying sinning is a cop-out, & God is not fooled. God Bless!

(1.)Some try to discern the differences between the Law and Grace, but they can't understand without the [unction] of the Holy Ghost. Obedience is required ALWAYS, yes, even under [Grace], for Faith without godly works/obedience is DEAD. Grace means Calvary, the Law didn't have Calvary. Calvary represents freedom and liberty in the Holy Ghost.
---Mrs._Morgan on 2/24/07


(2.)Those who talk that "all Christians must sin" talk, don't really live in the freedom/liberty of Calvary/Grace, they are still slaves to sin, and will be judged harshly by the Law. Jesus said if the Son frees you, you are free, but some reject His freedom, they rather choose to make excuses for why they can't obey God's Word, so they are excusing themselves out of Gods Saving Grace.
---Mrs._Morgan on 2/24/07


(3.)Calvary takes people out of darkness, going back into darkness(2 Peter 2:20-22)means one will be judged under the Law. Its called Free-Will, live under the liberty of God's saving Grace by abiding in the Word/Christ, or be judged harshly under the Law, choose this day whom ye will serve. God says to walk in the Spirit, "But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law"(Gal.5:18)(Romans 6:14). God Bless!

In addition, God [always]forgives those who are truly sincere, but those that try to turn the Grace of God into Lasciviousness(hypocrites)(Jude 1:4), are ignored by God, He loves the sinner(not his sins)but despises hypocrites(those who try to justify rebellion/error)(Job 27:8). God is NO respecter of persons. God Bless!

To Lisa and Bruce: I appreciate your views because I know them to be absolutely scriptural, and your explanation and sighting of them is very very insightful.

But if we live in the light, as God does, we share in life with each other. If we say that we have NOT SINED, we are fooling ourselves. BUT, we must confess our sins in order to be forgiven.

Lisa: I know this flesh still sins. I'm not saying that I am without sin. I'm saying that I'm no longer a sinner but a born again child of God. but when I sin, God chastises me and I repent of that sin. I understand that everyone sins. I understand the word about sin, but I'm not a sinner.
---Rebecca_D on 2/24/07


3. Again 1 John makes it clear in the warnings for all Christians that do sin, to walk in the light will show we are living by the truth. A person that is a new creation walks by the light, because he has the Holy Spirit to guide him. And since we are children of Christ, the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin. We don't purify ourselves, He purifies us. Verse 8. makes it clear that"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
---Lisas on 2/24/07


4. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (here we do not purify ourselves by been good) If we claim we have not sinned, we make Him out to be a liar and His word has no place in our lives." And if you go to the next verse, you will see why he mentions this to the believers, "My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin." meaning that believers still sin.

5. and goes on to say, "But if anybody does sin, we have One who speaks to the Father in our defense-Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrafice for our sins." Who's sin's? The believers sins. You see Rebecca we are under grace, and not under the law. A big difference and if you want to live under the law, then you have to do the whole law. Which no one is saved anyway by the law.
---Lisas on 2/24/07


#6. In the eyes of God Rebecca, you are no longer a sinner, only because of Christ righteouness that covers you. The unbeliever is still under of law. We are under grace. We are been sanctified each day, continuing to learn what our responsibilities are. As I said before, if we do sin, we feel it in our hearts and we are not forced to confess, we have a need to confess as Mimma said. It is for our own good. Not for Christ. It is for our guilt, so that we can become good ministers of God's Word.
---Lisas on 2/24/07


Rebecca, I believe Bruce gave you many passages to make you see that we still sin. The one's that teach that a believer does not sin or those that teach the law. You can find one good example to that in John 8:7, Here the teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caugth in adultery. You can see the same reaction from this teachers as the one's here that speak on the same subject, they condemn those that are believers and sin. They first look at themselves and then turn around
---Lisas on 2/24/07


2. and look at you and condemn you for still sinning. They do not understand that Christ has taken our sins. They do not understand we are not under the law but under Grace. I am speaking again about a true born of the Spirit believer. Not one that just gives lip service and never really has a contrite heart for Christ. "When they kept on questioning Him, He strightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her"

Mrs Morgan, you quote a lot of scripture and take it all literally as far as I can see. So, how then I must conclud that I should forgive my brother 490 times, but on the 491st, I do not. Matthew 18:21 - Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, until seven times: but until seventy times seven.

For the life of me, I cant understand why Christians are still confused and worried about sin. We should ask, What Christs Blood Did for us and the answer will be there in the bible. Here are a few...
Sin has no power over you
We are dead to sin
Sin is no longer counted against you
we are set free from sin
We have redemption
we are justified
we are forgiven
Jesus did this for you over 2000 yrs ago, its finished, thank Him, dont doubt Him

Lisas,
"...when it comes to you throwing a stab at those that believe with their hearts that they are saved because of the hope they have in Christ."

I, as much as anyone "believe with (my) (heart) that (I am) saved because of the hope (I) have in Christ"

My "stab" was not at OSAS, but at the concept that there is a difference between "the flesh "sinning and "the spirit" sinning.

(1 Tim.2:8)(1John 2:1-6)(James 1:8)(James 2:26)(1John 3:1-9)(Rev.2:14-17,25,26,29)(Rev.3:3,5,6,10,11,14-22)(Rev.12:11)(Rev.22:11-16). God Bless!
---Mrs._Morgan on 2/23/07


The reason we are to confess our sins(all of which were future to the cross) is not for the purpose to have them forgiven, the fact is that they were forgiven back at the cross. The purpose of our confessing today is not for Christ benefit but for our own, to cleanse our conscience of guilt . God himself does not move away from us but guilt in our mind keeps us from a right relationship with God. We are totally completely and absolutely forgiven by Almighty God.
---Mima on 2/23/07


Lisa:

Great post!!

Some prefer to mix grace and works. They are children of Hagar, instead of being children of the Promise.

They prefer the leeks and onions of bondage rather than the manna (grace of God) that comes freely, and in the exact measure we need each day.

The Q actually wonders at the extent of the Atonement, and if works by man is required.

If Jesus is not able to forgive ALL sins, past, present and future, he is an incomplete savior

Rebecca, if you did not say Christians go to hell, then who are you speaking about? The subject is Christians. We already know the people that reject Christ go to hell, that is not a concern to the topic we are speaking about. All people are sinners. In need of Christ everyday. The believer is not excempt from sin and perfected already. And no one is saved again and again every time he sins. Not Scriptual. One new creation, one new disposition, one new heart.

#4. Nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." The Bible speaks of nothing, not even death, or anything in all creation, now that is truth. Nothing means nothing.
---Lisas on 2/23/07


Eloy, all people are sinners, you included. no matter how much you try to tell others you are not, you are only contradicting yourself. You admitted you have been saved three times. Doesn't that make you a sinner? If you were a Christian, didn't you sin against God? You admitted the last time for eight years. I guess in your case, you are pure of sin, every time you are saved, but only for a time, cause you have to ask for forgiveness again and again and again to be saved again and again and again.

2. On perfection, I give you a passage, words from God, "Not that I have already attained or am already perfected; but I press on, that I amay lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" Philippians 3:12-14.

3. verse 20, "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself." We are not perfect yet but will be. Your teachings Eloy contradict the whole of Scripture. God is able to subdue all things, it is not dependent upon man but God.
---Lisas on 2/23/07


4. Eloy, A person saved does not have to confess his sins as Duane says, he confesses because he wants to confess. He is a new creation, created in Christ Jesus, and feels the need to confess when he knows and understands he has sinned. So please stop sending true Christians to hell, if they are, you are leading the pack. No one that commits suicide goes to hell if he is saved. Every one has a moment of despair, we are human and God knows our weaknesses.
---Lisas on 2/23/07


5. Just because a true born again believer commits suicide does not remove the love he had for Christ. Only a person that is truely saved has that love for Christ for all lost people don't love Christ. His despair does not erase his love. He might have felt like he lost hope, but he just didn't see it in his moment of despair. If our salvation is by works as Catholics and others teach, then we have no hope in Christ but in ourselfs'. No hope at all.

I will stand on behalf of justification by faith and not by our works for as long as I have breath.

Since, therefore, we are not justified by His blood, much more shall we be saved by Him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by His life," "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

True Christians don't go to Hell. But true Christians also don't gamble with their salvation. True Christians stays in prayer. Once in a while check themselves to see if there is any unforgiveness of sins attached to them. If you stay in prayer then, there is no need to fret about dieing in unforgiveness. I must say some of this stuff I see is just plaine MOCKING GOD. period.

I have never said Christians go to hell. Sinners do. If one is a true child of God and cares for others, they will tell them the truth about hell and if their not abiding in God always, that is where they will end up. If we see someone whom is dabbling in sin, we need to speak to them about hell, not sugar coat it.

Please stop telling others that true Christians go to hell. What kind of Christian tells another they can go to hell? Since I been on line that is the one thing people just keep insisting to other Christains. They don't talk about the faith and hope we have in Christ, but how that salvation is really not for reals because it depends on man. They insist in salvation by works or merits. Not justification by faith. All their hopes are on themselves. What kind of Christians believe that?

Duane: One must ask God to forgive them when they sin. One shouldn't believe, well God forgave me when I first God saved umteen years ago, I don't have to ask for forgiveness. If that were the case, then Jesus wouldn't have told us to repent of our sins, and to repent daily. If one don't ask for forgiveness, God can't forgive them.
---Rebecca_D on 2/22/07


An unforgiving spirit is one of the most serious of sins. [I didn't know that.] God's forgiveness is CONDITIONAL upon man's forgivness of the wrongs done Him. God's forgivness seems, however, to be LIMITED. 1=unpardonable sin.2=John speaks of the sin unto death. The deity of Christ evidenced He can forgive sins.[That's a good point.]

We cannot be saved and our sins still be counted against us. We as christians are always forgiven, we cannot be unforgiven or we are lost and not saved. Does anyone here really believe we are now dead to sin and alive to God???

Donna; The bible says be angry and sin not. So if you got mad at someone and acted out, you should have known you already sinned. Job tells us that we need to ask God to search our heart to see if there be anything hidden, and if there is for it to come to the surface so we can repent of that.

Rebecca, you said: God can't forgive someone if they don't ask to be forgiven.

I agree with you, however I have a question. What if that person didn't realize they sinned? OR what if I lost my temper at someone at work and freeked out on them and let's say I spend my time with the Lord at night versus the morning. I leave work, get hit by a car and die. Do I go to hell because I didn't have a chance to repent?

*So then is everybody who commited suicide in hell? How can people know that? I think only God knows that. The very thought of that scares me.

No Tara, everyone who committed suicide is not in hell.
